    But you need to add some quality graphic for buttons and related things...

      Not sure what you are saying? just image buttons? seems like I need way more than this. Should I make changes to the main page? I don't know I have no idea about this sort of thing.

          I would suggest you change from the single column layout to a 2 or 3 column layout.

          Compare the visual of your home page with Amazon, where the initial presentation is a featured product surrounded by several other choices and catchy suggestions, when you go there, you see what almost looks like advertisements, but they are all promotions that lead to various portions of the Amazon site. Your site is a presentation of a collection of items that, in my opinion, leaves the visitor flat.

          ...Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just set there.

            Couldn't agree more. Also, you need more content. It's way to "ady" for me. I know content is time consuming to create, but write a few paragraph posts of your own experiences as a mom related to what your are trying to promote and pitch. 3 columns would help on the layout and a featured item and reviews would be great. You need to engage your visitors a little more. Just some of my thoughts, hope it helps you some way.

            Wish you all the best with your site!!

    You are using wordpress and i think you can find many themes which are looking better than the one you have now. Search for a better theme and then hire someone to change your theme and make all the customizations because you need to improve your design.

    Now you are using the Prose child theme for Genesis. If you already have the Genesis framework then go to their site and you'll find better child themes to use than the one you already have...this one is just a basic one but even so I think you can achive a better design if you hire a good WP developer.

    Have you tried seeing how it looks like with a background image? Or trying to see how it looks like with border outline "thicker"

    You need to fix the blue buttons, they are all rough around the round parts. The text is also not centered the same on each button. I would not trust this site.

    oscommerce is a bad solution... Wait, I was just about to tell the story of someone I recently told this... when I realized that person was you! lol!

    I hope my advice has helped you with your decisions!

    To go in deeper for the benefit of all reading here:
    oscommerce is a script that is marketed to the masses, that you can add to any site. However, it does not "jive" well with existing content management systems, it has its own agenda, and you are dependent on the makers of it for support (at a cost of course!).

    This makes it harder for actual developers to work on that aspect of your website. Because you are locked into that specific technology to run your whole ecommerce portion of your website. One that is not open to work by other developers.

    You are truly better off working with a plugin that was designed for your current CMS, as opposed to using such a silly aftermarket script (even if it is "free" on the surface).

      It is not polite to spam others threads with your problems. Nobody will help people who don't have the minimal respect for members.

    it is pretty out dated design. You must follow some current trends for your website.

    There seems to be too much on the menu bar. You should try changing it by using categories, and drop down, to reduce the number of things.
